Norqain & Grand Slam Champion Stan Wawrinka presents Wild ONE Skeleton Coral and Gecko

Norqain welcomes tennis icon and multiple Grand Slam Champion Stan Wawrinka into its fold as a distinguished partner and ambassador for the innovative Wild ONE Skeleton Coral and Wild ONE Skeleton Gecko timepieces.

Renowned as one of the greatest talents in tennis, he epitomizes grace and resilience both on and off the court. In a remarkable career spanning over two decades, he has clinched an impressive 16 titles, including three Grand Slam victories, Olympic gold, and the Davis Cup for his homeland of Switzerland. His unwavering determination and sportsmanship have earned him global acclaim and respect.

In his inaugural role with Norqain, Stan will play a pivotal part in driving the brand's international growth trajectory, utilizing his extensive global network and profound influence within the worldwide tennis community. This collaboration marks the onset of an exciting new chapter for Norqain, poised for unprecedented expansion and innovation.

I’m super happy to be joining the Norqain family and to play a role in growing the company,” said Stan. “I’d been wearing the NORQAIN Wild ONE Turquoise Skeleton and testing it on court since the US Open in 2023, and just loved it. I’ve always liked wearing a watch when I play and I had high hopes of the watch given its technical specifications. Wearing it has been such a joy, and I’m so pleased that it’s led to this new adventure. And I’m super excited to walk out on court in Paris and then London as an ambassador for the Wild ONE Skeleton Coral and Gecko.

Entering the next phase of this year's tennis major season, Stan will step onto the court as the ambassador for two exciting new versions of Norqain's renowned Wild ONE Skeleton watch. Famous for its durability and lightweight design, the Wild ONE Skeleton features the innovative NORTEQ® case construction.

First up at the French Open in May, Stan will sport the Wild ONE Skeleton Coral, a vibrant timepiece inspired by the fiery red clay of Roland Garros's iconic courts. Then, come July and Wimbledon, he'll showcase the Wild ONE Skeleton Gecko, a striking green iteration paying homage to the lush grass courts of the prestigious tournament.

Ben Küffer, Norqain's founder and CEO, expressed his excitement about the collaboration with Stan, highlighting their shared values of individuality and authenticity. He praised Stan's embodiment of Norqain's "my life, my way" philosophy throughout his career, making him the perfect fit for the brand.

The new Coral and Gecko editions join the acclaimed Wild ONE Skeleton collection, which gained attention with the release of the best-selling Turquoise model last summer. Both Coral and Gecko variants are based on the Wild ONE Skeleton 42mm, featuring an open-worked dial and impressive 5,000g shock resistance.

These new editions showcase Coral red or Gecko green detailing to reflect the respective tennis court surfaces. From the rubber shock absorbers to the hour markers, each element is made in Coral red or Gecko green, complemented by luminescent X1 Super-LumiNova®. Completing the look are animal cruelty-free black rubber straps with a matching Coral red or Gecko green rubber mesh insert.
